Call to Worship
God, I will gather and call on you.
I want to be your student, God.
I want to be a God-learner, show me what I must do.
Focus my mind and heart so there are no distractions.
I want to learn.
I can’t be the God expert, there is no such thing, but I will learn.
Put a light in me, so that others may see I am your student.
I am the God-student. Amen
One: Let us pray…
Today we call upon you as Children of God to share in the love and work of Jesus. May these gifts, O God, become action and intention, fulfilling Christ’s commandment to love. Amen.
October 15th Sermon
1 Corinthians 13:8-13 NIV
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
